Your “home away from home” awaits you at The Cavalier By The Sea. Friendly service is our hallmark. We believe at the end of your stay you will be satisfied and refreshed and not quite ready to leave…. and you will find yourself returning year after year as do hundreds of our previous and now regular guests.

Cavalier By The Sea offers a family atmosphere. For your enjoyment, we have a large swimming pool for adults, a small one for the kiddies, and a large playground equipped with swings, slides, a giant ship for the kids, shuffleboard, volleyball, and picnic tables.

We have comfortable rooms with queen and double beds, cable TV, microwaves, and refrigerators. We also have efficiencies and two & three-bedroom cottages including living room, kitchen, and bath completely furnished for light housekeeping.

You will be right on the ocean and have only a few feet to walk to enjoy it to your heart’s content whether it be swimming, wading, sunbathing, or surfcasting. Or if you prefer not to walk at all, enjoy watching the ocean from your front porch in our very popular oceanfront rooms which, unlike most “oceanfront” rooms, sit right on the beach with no dunes to block your view.

What We Offer

Family Fun

We take pride in being a family-oriented motel. Our large, well-equipped playground and kiddie pool, in addition to the big pool, family-oriented activities, and our caring, friendly, and conscientious staff bring our guests back generation after generation. For many of our guests, The Cavalier has been a family tradition since 1950.

True Ocean Front

Our ocean-front rooms are unbeatable! From your porch, you walk straight out onto the beach. No sand dunes to obstruct your view. See beautiful sunrises over the ocean through your picture window without leaving your room, or even your bed!

Why Stay With Us?

Clean rooms, family atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff … these are the qualities most mentioned by our customers. That’s why we are ranked at the top of motels/hotels in Kill Devil Hills. Pets are allowed in Cottages.

Affordable Rates

The Cavalier has always kept its rates family-friendly. As a family-owned business, our philosophy has always been, “A business owner has to make a living, but they don’t have to rob their customers to do it.”.

“Depending on what you’re looking for in a motel…..if you’re looking for a vintage feel, quaint rooms, the ocean at your front door with no dune, wonderful staff….this is THE place to stay. Built in the 50’s, family-owned … much more to offer than the cookie-cutter condos or hotels where staying on the 3rd or 4th floor is the only way to have an ocean view.”
